Updated: The Predator Teaser Trailer Arrives Mid-April

Update 5/4/18: Shane Black has since clarified his comments. The teaser trailer will be released at Cinemacon which takes place in Las Vegas between 23-26th April. It will be shown across cinemas at some point afterwards.

The first The Predator trailer will finally be coming in a couple of weeks, according to director Shane Black. Black to Twitter to respond to some comments suggesting the secrecy surrounding the film was due to the studio forcing changes upon his cut. The director said he was just busy and that the teaser trailer will finally be released in the middle of April – it’s better to see the movie without knowing anything about it.

In addition to the trailer news, Shane also posted a new production still showing the sun rays shining through the Vancouver rainforest with the caption: “Shhhh… He’s Coming.” You can spot a little blue spark down near the shrubs. Speaking of Vancouver, the reshoots would have wrapped a few days ago.

The Predator is still scheduled to be released September 14th. Keep checking in with Alien vs. Predator Galaxy for the latest on The Predator!

    Right in time for Deadpool 2‘s release next week, we are delighted to report that the first trailer for Shane Black’s The Predator is now in the can and ready for an imminent launch. The piece was rated this afternoon by the German FSK and is expected online in the next week, if not in the next few minutes (if our previous experience with 20th Century Fox trailer classifications is to go by).

    Yea, you're right. After reading so much, I don't know how to say, offense towards the movie, this was my first post in a while, I was agitated. The one in the other thread came later. Sorry if I hurt your feelings.

    Feelings, scheelings. I've been pretty clear that I think the shit ideas they're putting forth are shit ideas.

    Nonetheless, as I see, my point stands. Why be negative in advance. To be frank, I don't feel right about the concept. I don't want megapredators and dna modifying and whatnot. Doesn't feel right.

    I'm not saying it should be accepted, but come on, when we see the final product, we can decide. Why be negative and try to imagine the worst case scenario? It can happen, yea. But trying to be creative and "hype" oneself is much more productive. For instance, look at the comic "Hunters" If somebody told me beforhand the story, I'd say, this is ******

    A shit idea is a shit idea, and it's going to take extreme excellence to make a shit idea, not great, but less shitty. The DNA mod thing reeks of a B-movie in the worst ways. And we have Fred "Robocop 3" Dekker" at the helm. The dude is an awful director.

    You aren't going to make something great with poor ingredients and a lackluster chef. That's not being negative. Those are the facts.

    At the moment, we have an official preview, some interviews, pictures showing little to nothing and an old draft.
    Based on this, there are hardly any facts about the movie.

    One can think the idea is bad (though from the official synopsis very little can be told if it stands for the predator species as whole, or another type will be introduced again, like in predators. The whole thing with the little boy is in fact a bad idea.)
    Or the scrrenwriter, director bad based on their previous works. But those are not facts, unfortunately.

    Feelings, assumptions, premonitions.

    Once there is some proof, it we'll have facts. But we don't even have a trailer.

    Might it be that I overlooked something? Was there any confirmation about any information that maybe I missed?

    No one has confirmed anything other than it drops this month, but it has to come out with Deadpool 2. Besides being Rated R and Fox, it's the sequel for one of the most successful rated R movies in history, attaching the Predator trailer to it is their best way out of the Avengers hype, that way they'll take a ride on the Deadpool hype which is pretty big too.

    Correction: hope to see it.
    It hasn't been officially confirmed as far as I know. We just expect it because DP2 is R rated and Fox too.

    Sadly, we get DP2 a little earlier and I don't expect to see the trailer in cinema right then. But I settle for a decent youtube ;)

    Story is everything. We'll see what they've brought to the table soon enough. I'm bracing myself for a Super 8 vibe.

    According to the script it's possible, we'll have to see if they choose this type of tone in the actual movie, but it could be a weird mix...

    Don't think we should be too fixed on the leaked script. When a script leaks that early, it's usually a very early and raw draft of it, never the final version. At least everytime I saw this happening, this was the case. So I think even before the reshoots the final film wouldn't been quite different from that script, and now that they actually made reshoots...
    Sure, some things are gonna stay, some concepts and ideas, but the film itself, how the story's developed and the themes explored, that's gonna be different. It's already sounding different from the trailer descriptions.
  6. Danversity
    I've never seen anything of Dekker's, but honestly, writing is something that there's just no way to pre-judge based on past works. Eric Heisserer wrote the Nightmare On Elm Street remake, the The Thing reboot, Final Destination 5 and then... Arrival. I mean, damn.

    And one way or another Black is co-writer and the actual director. He's easily the best director that has helmed a Predator movie since McTiernan, so I'm excited for him.

    Fortunately the director is Shane Black, not Dekker ! And for a majority of people the first Predator movie is considered a B movie, so that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    Ah, still no trailer, I gotta wipe some tears of anger.

    Oh, wait...I'm an adult. Come on!

    But you claim in the other thread you're not trying to be a provocateur and want people to be positive.

    Why don't you stop trying to put other people down for how they feel?

    But it was pretty nice, the chemistry worked.

    All I'm saying, people are putting themselves down, being like this.

    Again, sorry if pulled at some threads in anyone.

    Well, the big difference is this is "just another Predator sequel"

    AVP was something pretty special. In terms of what the concept represented and just how long people had been waiting for it.
    Well, that's what Predators was too, right?
    AvP was supposed to be special and spent about ten, fifteen years in development limbo.

    The fact that it got made was more special than the film it ended up to be.

    No matter who has control over the release of the trailer....it can't be denied that the reason is something of a worry....

    Am keeping my expectations pretty low on this one....and would be glad to be proved otherwise.
  12. Danversity
    Well I hope they hit it really hard these remaining 4 months to try to compensate. Black doesn't have any control of the marketing, but you can tell just how excited he is about this movie by seeing he posting about it as much as he can. Once the marketing gets ignited, I'm sure we'll get tons of new things. The budget for this movie is seriously high for a Predator movie, it's insane to think they would market a mid-budget film like Predators a lot more than this... So I'm expecting the marketing to come heavy starting this month.

    14 years of waiting! I really liked the very first teaser just made up of closeups of the creatures. Kind'a wish The Predator had done something like that earlier.

    It's a great teaser. The first three videos related to AVP actually had a lot of promise. The teaser, Paul Anderon's "pitch" and then the first trailer which was basically the teaser with a few additional scenes.

    Another good one from around that time was the Terminator 3 Teaser, which the theater I was in when that came on basically lost their goddamn minds for a good two minutes.


    It is a little disconcerting we haven't see anything like that for The Predator. Something with pomp.

    I miss they day that people were able to crack a joke without offending anyone per definition. If this is harassing, I seriously doubt your tolerance to the world.
    Who got offended? Some people pointed out it was a shitty joke and a poor show of support and others got defensive. No-one got offended.

    I'm not upset about anything.

    But I do remember James Gunn getting similar comments in the lead-up to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. He posted some photos on Instagram of himself and his partner on holidays during post-production enjoying a much-deserved break. People started slinging awful, vitriolic shit about "stop f**king around and give us a trailer already" on his social media platforms. He posted an impassioned response saying he had zero control over it and that maybe people should appreciate the fact that making a movie takes a lot of work and that they should possibly -- just out of courtesy -- f**k off with the entitled shit and let things run their course.

    I'm a director. When I get people telling me to hurry up with things out of my control, I don't get flattered. I get annoyed that they clearly don't know enough about the process to understand that I'm not the person they should be talking to about this shit, and even if I were, f**k them, we've got a schedule to stick to.

    And sniped. Comeon, gentleman, you're supposed to be grown-ups but I'm not seeing it. Lionhart, Skhelter, let's act like that instead of resorting to school yard (dumbass, dumbf**ks, whatever). Next time either of you regresses to teenage years, you'll find yourself without the ability to post.

    Shane Black has no control over the trailer's release. Directors have very little to do with marketing. It's not a good show on the fandom to tweet or Facebook the director of films making demands of them and coming bragging about it. It maybe intended in jest but you know how hard it is to judge intent over the internet.

    Come-on guys, show a little class please.
